Legends of Caithness
Stomper is excited to be a part of the committee organising the upcoming Legends of Caithness exhibition. But all these things are more exciting when you can share them. So, if you would like to join in, take a look at the documents on the right!
Below, are the profiles for the Legends of Caithness team.
My name is Cally, I've been working in Community Arts Delivery for around 10 years and am the ideas guy behind "Legends of Caithness".
I like to strengthen links between the people, industries and landscape through art and I hope to do that with this exhibition of local people's work in the summer. I am also invested in starting conversations through workshops and training sessions which I have found valuable in the past.
It's been amazing to see how the Caithness landscape has inspired unique legends such as the selkies and mermaids, and the ways these stories have been passed down through generations. I hope to be part of the preservation of these tales.
Hi! My name is Niluka, and I’m super excited to be your last team member on the “Legends of Caithness” committee. I’m new to Scotland, and have been inspired by the rich history and culture present in Caithness. I believe that stories and people connect us to our past, and more importantly, shape our future. I hope to use my experience in research and finance to increase accessibility, improve funding allocations for the area, and have a great time with members of the community!
Greetings! My name is Virginia. I'm a music teacher and award-winning author based in Westfield. I've always been deeply fascinated by cultural history, culminating in an MLitt in "History of the Highlands and Islands" - my home. I love stories of a People, most particularly their legends and beliefs, seeking truth within the unprovable. I'm delighted to be a part of this project, as it recaptures the old myths and projects them forward for future generations. And, yes, I still look for the Lavellan when I am walking my dogs!
